Blue Ridge Parkway at Mt. Pisgah
With storms approaching, I drove onto The Parkway at Asheville, and headed west toward Mt. Pisgah. Clouds and intermittent sun always make for dramatic scenes.
Mt. Pisgah in the distance…
A closer look… The tower on the summit is over 6,000 feet above sea level, the highest transmission tower east of the Mississippi. With most people using cable and satellite these days, the old tower is mostly obsolete.
Having lunch at the Pisgah Inn along The Parkway is like flying in a plane…
This view toward the southwest through the window at lunch rivals any view anywhere. That’s Looking Glass Rock, the round peak in the center, a favorite of rock climbers.
Diving off The Parkway toward Brevard, a visit to Looking Glass Falls is always memorable.
Back at home, storms were approaching from the west. Three inches of needed rain fell overnight.
